Current Volunteer Opportunities 
Library Volunteers Needed

Did you know that the HPS library is staffed by parent volunteers before school starts every morning? Our library, located on the first floor, is completely parent-run. It is open to all children during the morning drop-off period. Our greatest need is for parent volunteers who can help children check out books during that window. To volunteer, you should be able to commit to being there one morning a week from about 7:20 to 8:00am. It helps if you like both children and books, but you don't need to have any special background - we use a simple computerized checkout system and will train volunteers. If you're not able to commit to a morning shift, we can still sometimes use volunteers who have daytime flexibility for special projects like adding new books to the collection and doing inventory. If you're interested in becoming a library volunteer, please contact Maggie Mucha at  maggiemucha@gmail.com .
Classroom Coordinators Needed

Now that class lists have been distributed we are looking to fill the roles for Classroom Coordinators with our Parents/Grandparents/Friends/Etc. Ideally there will be two volunteers in each class to share in the following responsibilities;  Aid the teacher with communications out to parents, organize class parties, collect funds if a classroom group gift is purchased, and collect raffle basket donations for Spring Celebration in May.   

Our Classroom Coordinator Lead, Adaire Hiestand, will be available throughout the year to answer questions and provide guidance. Those who are first timer's at volunteering for this role please know you will not be alone! Volunteers please e-mail Adaire with your name, email address, teacher's name, and grade. adaireh@gmail.com
